Hi everyone. Before I jump right in to start asking questions and seeking advice, etc. I wanted to say Hello and that I am glad to have found a place where people may understand my pain and feelings that go along with.
I am not sure whether to mention my problem here or in the chronic pain section. Also, should I use my real first name or just my username? It makes no difference to me. Looking forward to conversing with you, whoever you may be, as we all share at least one thing in common, that being pain.


  • and welcome to the forum....you have come to the right place for support and understanding. In answer to your questions , you may post what problems and\or questions that you have here or in the Chronic Pain section and as far as using your real name , well , that is up to you. My name is Miki and it is nice to meet you....if there is ever anything that I can help you with then feel free to just let me know. Wishing you all the best , take care....Miki
  • What Miki says. Welcome and post as you feel necessary. Use whatever name you feel most comfortable with. I'm "C" and yes that's my name.
